There's something about the name "GTX" that just says bass-ass. It makes GTO sound tame and Mustang sound like sandwich spread (just kidding Pontiac and Ford guys). The GTX is a cut above the Road Runner; more of a luxury-class hot rod if you will, as exterior trim and interior finishes offered more detail.
There's still a 440 under the hood, and this one was rebuilt 4000 miles ago with aluminum heads and intake. Hedman ceramic coated headers expel all the fury and Mopar performance valve covers replace the rather boring stamped steel ones. She was built to 500 horse specs. An 8-quart oil pan makes sure there's always plenty of blood to keep it healthy. This is more than a light to light dominator. A Strange posi rear end features 3:73-1 gears, and a new 518 overdrive transmission drops the revs on the freeway to make it even more streetable and perhaps a tad bit more economical. A Bee Cool aluminum radiator helps offset the crazy power this car makes, keeping it in check. Wilwood front disc brakes are responsible for bringing the party to an end. This Plymouth fires right up and has a tough lopy idle that'll put a smile on anyones face. The 60's baby. It was quite a time.
Outside, the paint is smooth and of very good quality, looking pretty much factory stock. It was taken down to bare metal, most of which was still original, and the original floors are still in place. Original glass still in place. Fit and finish is first class, however the decklid could use some final adjustment. Inside, you'll find a fresh, neat and tidy interior cooled by added Vintage Air Conditioning, and original seat belts were restored by Ssnake Oil of Texas. Overall an outstanding car that will give you goosebumps. The dash was all redone, new gauges, carpet, headliner, Redondo AM/FM w/ Bluetooth, factory console,
